We all get busy, but scheduling and keeping appointments with your general dentist is crucial for lifetime dental health.

In our Humble, TX dental office, our skilled dentist believes in preventative dentistry. This includes catching potential dental issues early to maintain ongoing dental health and save you the pain associated with dental emergencies later.

Remember, regular dental care promotes healthy teeth for life.

Let’s look at a few more reasons why you should visit our general dentist regularly.

Preventative Care Means Early Detection

At Humble Dentistry, our skilled dentist can find and treat a cavity in the early stages. This helps you avoid a root canal later or potential tooth loss.

Additionally, bacterial infections lead to tooth and gum damage. Seeing our dentist regularly means that a minor infection can be treated before it spreads, causes pain, and compromises your oral health.

Periodontal Disease Caught Early

Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States, but with early detection, periodontal disease can be treated successfully.

Remember, in the early stages, periodontal disease may have few or no symptoms, which is why it’s important to see our dentist regularly.

Oral Health Screenings Are Important

Our general dentist assesses your oral health carefully at each visit—noting changes that you may not notice.

Oral health screenings include:

  • Oral cancer
  • Oral changes
  • Signs of sleep apnea, which can lead to high blood pressure

Contact Our Dental Office

Scheduling and keeping appointments with our general dentist is the foundation of optimal oral health for life. It’s also important to schedule dental cleanings every six months with our dental hygienist.

If you have not scheduled your regular dental assessment or dental cleaning this year, contact our Humble, TX dental office today.

We look forward to addressing all your oral health needs at Humble Dentistry.
